Let the world go on auto pilot. We've been married 28 years today, and we're taking the day off!
1981, a year before the wedding:

The big day, April 10 1982 (my brother had invited us to tag along to his wedding
and make it a double wedding):

and less than a year ago, August 2009:


My wife and I are up in Hamburg for the day. We always liked seaside cities, and Hamburg is one
of our favorites. The sun is even shining, which happens about once every three months or so here!
Even Mother Nature likes us today! :loveya:

5. Thanks, everyone!
We've both had medical issues (cardiac with me, cancer with her), but we'll not stop trying
to beat the odds (it ain't over 'til it's over). I'll never find another one like her, so I
hope I never have to try--at least not for the next 50 years or so.

Tonight: our favorite Indian restaurant in Hamburg. Namast!!

10. I certainly got the blessings, anyway
She is a nearsighted social worker, so maybe I'm just a long-term rehabilitation project, who knows?

As long as the rehab project is ongoing, you'll hear no objections from me.
